From: The Pastor’s Heart
Title: “You CAN’T go BacK!”
Last night was truly an electrifying and enjoyable night of Bible study that can’t be
adequately explained, it had to have been experienced. So rather than my trying to inform
you of all that was said, I’ll simply encourage you to request a copy of the dvd or pull it up
later on line in the archived section on the web site because it will benefit you
tremendously. What I do want to address, however, is the manner in which the spirit of
God drove us to a place of transformative awakening of which it’s not likely we’ll be
returning to our former status quo of expected encounters. Something thumped in the
spirit realm to alert the participants that NOW is the moment of intense restructuring and
it’s refreshing for those who desire greater from Him and will give greater to Him.
Sometimes something happens to grab your attention in a way that’s not only unique, but
euphoric. It captures your imagination and recharges your creative juices in a way that
even if you can’t quite define it, you know you absolutely cannot deny it. There are great
moments in life that you’ll always remember. Moments like the birth of your first baby, the
celebrated accomplishment of graduating high school, and the achievement of buying
your first home. These are just a few and they are events that happen in the natural sphere
of life. They are unforgettable, no doubt, but they pale in comparison to the revelatory
experiences that come directly from the Kingdom of God. A move of the Lord so
compelling that it redirects your focus and introduces you to new possibilities.
Today my objective is not to necessarily describe that move, because I realize that it varies
for each believer and it’s affect will differ one with the other depending on the individual’s
spiritual maturity. I must, however, remind or inform you that when the wave of God’s
wonder comes upon your life it unequivocally notifies you that change has been assigned
to your life and you must be ready for better. Change, for a lot of people, is difficult and
uncomfortable. Some really struggle with allowing the Spirit of God to shift them because
of the uncertainty of what lies ahead. Change will expose your vulnerabilities and
limitations. It will force you to have to relinquish the level of power you had to the Lord in
order to receive and properly use the new power He’s preparing to give you.
Please hear me because I share this today not from what I desire, but from what I hear the
Lord saying. You are not going to be comfortable living the way you have because you are
no longer bound to the issues that plagued you and stunted your growth. It’s not that you
are, all of a sudden, going to get riches and immediate prosperity, but rather, you’re
becoming better at handling the good and the bad that materializes in your life. What you
once approached logically and carnally, you’ll now address it spiritually and with renewed
authority. I am convinced of this one thing and I do not apologize for it… you are
something special to God and no matter how uncomfortable it’s about to be for you, let
me be the one to inform you that… “You CAN’T go BacK!”
EVERYTHING WE DO MOVING FORWARD WILL BE INTENTIONAL AND DRIVEN WITH
PURPOSE TO REPRESENT THE KINGDOM OF GOD IN THE BEST POSSIBLE LIGHT!
NOTHING WILL BE DONE WITH ENERGY LESS THAN OUR BEST AND EFFORT BELOW
OUR MAXIMUM POTENTIAL.
OUR SERVICE IS LOCAL, BUT OUR REACH IS GLOBAL – SO WE CANNOT REDUCE OUR
PRESENTATION DOWN TO WHAT’S CONVENIENT, BUT RATHER WE MUST RAISE IT TO
THAT WHICH IS EXPLOSIVE!
Get ready for major change that’s coming systematically, intellectually, purposefully, and
professionally. Nothing we do moving forward will be done haphazardly, sloppily, poorly,
We Are the LIGHT!
